Cerro San Bernardo (4,150m) is a mountain located in the Vallecitos ski center. It is very close to Mendoza city, only 80 kilometers away. It also lies within the Andes mountain range, standing out for its unique beauty and excelente location.

Vallecitos is home to many other equally impressive mountains, like the Cerro Adolfo Calles, Stepanek and Franke. All of them rise above the 4,000 meters of height. Thus, making the expeditions on these peaks the perfect training for taller ones.

So, this is the perfect trip if you are planning to climb higher mountains, like the Aconcagua (6,962m) in the Andes, or others in the Himalayas.

Due to the high altitude at which we will be trekking, this expedition requires you to be in a good physical shape. Also, it requires you to have previous experience climbing.

About the Guide

 
 

EPGAMT Mountain guide from Argentina.

The mountain is my workplace and space to enjoy what I like to do ... mountaineering.

I climbedd and promoted various mountains and volcanoes such as: Aconcagua , Ojos del Salado, Pissis , Walter Penck , Incahuasi, Plata, Rincon, Vallecitos , etc.

The mountain can find oneself, to rediscover the essence and every moment. It is a natural place that transmits balance, harmony, tranquility and at the same time, tests us and motivates us to self-improvement. The mountain is accessible to all, just enough to take the first step ... we offer a different experience to share.
